My boyfriend and I have been together for a year and a half.
I knew him for a year before we got into a relationship. At first we were in the same country but different cities, and we used to meet up as much as possible every month.
But he keeps complaining about how much money he spent on a ticket to come see me – and I know he also spends a lot of money on his friends and himself. You've been with this person for less than two years, but you spent almost a year thinking about what the relationship could be.
By the time you got things going, you were already committed, decided, and sure.
You believed that the prep time guaranteed you a great relationship. When you started the relationship, you hit the reset button.
